Cornell ILR launches Globalization and the Workplace program

Apr '07
"People who live and work in China, Asia, Africa and Latin America will see major changes in their lives as they increasingly become part of the world economy. Similarly, we in the United States feel the impact of manufacturing and service jobs moving offshore on our own economy," Cohen added. "No institution is better positioned to bring the tools of social science to this endeavor than the ILR School."

Abby Cohen said: "The rapid economic development now occurring elsewhere [in the world] raises many questions. These involve not only the challenges to our own workforce and employers, but also the desirability of creating safe workplaces and opportunities to lift people in other regions out of poverty and into productive work lives."

The Cohens have a long history of involvement with Cornell. Abby Cohen is a presidential councilor and trustee emerita of the university, as well as a member of the board of overseers of the Weill Cornell Medical College. David Cohen is a member of the ILR dean's advisory council and the University Council and is chair emeritus of Cornell Hillel. In recognition of their support, the Cohens have been honored as Foremost Benefactors of Cornell University.
